Mountain Bike 101

  • Idlewild Bike Park (map)

Ever been curious about taking your two-wheeled adventures off-road?

Well, let‘s do this! We have got a super-sweet opportunity for you to get your training wheels to becoming that confident master of the mountain bike.

No bike? No worries! Our friends at Montgomery Cyclery have AMAZINGLY offered to bring their bike van with a ride that YOU pick out!

It's just like riding a bike... but challenging, dirty and RAD! 

This clinic is for anyone 12 and older who wants to learn the basics of mountain biking and take a test run. We are SO excited to learn from “Got Dirt’ certified coach Liv Birkenhauer, an experienced and passionate biker who teaches all-age clinics in this area and throughout the country. She’s the real deal. Learn more about Liv on the Got Dirt Facebook page. 

Idlewild is just one of many mountain bike trails lovingly maintained by our new friends at the Cincinnati Off Road Alliance (CORA). 

These folks are taking care of over 60 miles of trails, including at Devou Park, Mitchell Memorial Forest, Houston Woods and more. They're out there advocating for more mountain bike experiences and education and having a helluva time doing it. Follow them on social media and their podcast The Gravel Lot to keep up with the exciting projects on the horizon for Cincy. They also have live, color-coded updates on all their trail's conditions - pretty nifty.
